Brujo: Tea_tempest_Cup:
MorganGuard: Don't appreciate submitter's attempt at humor ... armed forces members likely the victims. There's no humor in their loss whether it involves domestic fatalities or overseas.

Welcome to Fark, go cry some more.

Translation: "I'm proud to be a douchebag."


The mods greenlit the headline - use Farkback & tell them they're douchebags.

Skleenar: Spoonfed'sBuddy: Wrong question. The one we need to ask is:

Why aren't our troops, trained and trusted on the battlefield, allowed to carry on base?

Because people expect to get shot on the battlefield?


Evidently not the case. Bad things happen to good people in all kinds of places.

Ewwwww, babby's are gross!

So, I guess sex is out of the question then?

Never question sex.

Just make sure you have a coat hanger afterwards.

/So going to hell.


All I have are those round plastic ones. I have a bunch of paperclips, though.

flamingboard: how much is the betting line on the shooters being white supremacists? "we don't take orders from negro commander and chiefs around here."



gilgigamesh: Man, Hannity really, really wants to believe it's the Muzzies.


Birds of a feather.

Here in Austin our state buildings are increasing security and people are starting to wisper terrorism. The Gov. and the Lt. Gov are about to get a brief from the Texas Ranger/FBI joint terrorism task force.

Spooky

CNN is just now saying that a 3rd shooter may be involved... where can I see a better feed than CNN?

They are streaming CBS CH.11 in Fort Worth.

GameSprocket: Hey! I just realized that I can listen to the police/EMS scanner from Fort Hood!

Only interesting thing so far is that the cops can't use their cell phones because the circuits are full.


Seems like there should be reasonably allocated frequencies for emergency services. Wasn't this one of the issues that came up on 9/11 almost a decade ago now? And there were hearings. And millions were appropriated to work on the problem. And then large parts of the spectrum were auctioned off to commercial interests with no regard for emergency services. I can't be the only one that remembers this.

Hope if there's still a shooter on the run that he doesn't have a Blackberry...

Newsflash: depending on the definition terrorism (even State dept doesn't have a concrete one), domestic terrorism occurs up to 10x more frequently than international terrorism.

In the real world.

Your Faith is Creepy: MorePeasPlease: Don't forget you have the option to shirt it up top.

That's one of the more disgusting comments that's made it into this thread, and that's saying something.


Well, it was meant to point out the inappropriateness, not really for the lulz.

AmazingRuss: alywa: So, who wants to guess what the top motive speculations will be? I'm not touching it.

for the lulz, of course


One of the shootings was at the theater, so maybe Paranormal Activity didn't live up to the hype.

Jonesy Boogieman: Well, a senior manager in Alberta Health got the boot for favourtism, and a couple more might as well, but apparently the team was "unaware". And, IMHO, I bet they weren't the only ones, they just got burned first


he got the boot because Alberta Health in general has farked the whole situation up and he was a convenient target. Ken King said that he would do what he could to help him for losing his job over it. the Flames and their families, a hundred shots, maybe. hell they probably lost more shots than that.

Hender: muck4doo: I just heard that all the Jewish soldiers were told not to go to the base today.

I heard that the shooters were using super thermite.


I'm getting reports that all the victims had bullets put in them before the attach

GanjSmokr: jst3p: It is why you cut it out the first time you quoted her dumbass.

No, I didn't cut it out in the first quote. It wasn't in the first quote. The first quote (in my post) in its entirety:

jbuist: Marla Singer's Laundry: If this wasn't a God-hating gun-free zone, this wouldn't have happened!

You don't have the foggiest clue with gun rules are on base, do you?

It's a joke. Didn't think anyone in here was dumb enough to miss it, especially the part where I said it was a joke.

But, enlighten us, Internet Twaddle-Pump. No, not now...go put on your Desert Storm-era camos before you start typing.

Christ.


and the second quote (in my post) in its entirety:

If this wasn't a God-hating gun-free zone, this wouldn't have happened!


(how was that?)

Now fark off, dumbass.


Fine, you responded to someone else who had edited it. You are still a dumbass if you took her comment to be a serious one.

Guntram Shatterhand: My guess: someone didn't like that the Conservative Party didn't win NY-23 and decided to follow some Palin advice and shoot up all the RINOs. And just decided that V for Vendetta was all about Obama as well, so November 5th was as good a day as any...especially when you don't have a black guy as president.

Let's face it, if any political side is responsible, it's the ones who are crying about 'socialism' and how the black president is going to take away their 'rights' to harass everybody who doesn't fit their narrow version of normal. The same people who carried guns to Town Hall meetings.

That said, I never knew that Fort Hood had rent-a-cops, much less this was SOP for other army bases. What a world.


They use contracted security agencies, the local one here is Coastal Security, and I think other posts use the same company.

Latinwolf: ranak: EdNortonsTwin: x1 shooter = deranged soldier or wash-out.

x2 or more - muslim extremists. Terrorist (domestic or foreign, take your pick)

/Two cents, I has um.

Inspiring terror through violence is not limited to Muslims.

Timothy McVeigh was a terrorist, yet some Libertarians see him as a hero.


The same way some Liberals see Osama Bin Laden as a freedom fighter akin to George Washington
 
2009-11-05 04:48:19 PM  
More than one shooter seems to indicate the possibility of terrorism to me.
 
2009-11-05 04:48:24 PM  
12 dead, up to 30 wounded

All rifle rounds are cop killer bullets, but I suspect you know that.

I bet if he didn't say anything you'd use it as an example about how he's out of touch and doesn't care about the military.
